National Geographic Channel Embarks On A Quest To Mars

With ground-breaking miniseries Red Planet from executive producers Ron Howard and Brian Grazer

Of all the planets in our solar system, none has captured our collective imagination like Mars — a mysterious, indelible part of our zeitgeist.

Executive produced by Ron Howard and Brian Grazer, Red Planet will follow the thrilling quest to colonize Mars and the first manned mission in 2032 with feature film-calibre special effects and interviews from scientists and innovators who are leading the research and development of space technology.

As Ron Howard says, “we possess boundless curiosities and an unparalleled spirit of adventure. These intrepid explorers — following in the footsteps of pioneers before them — will spark our imaginations as we weave together the stories of both the past and the present Mars visionaries, along with the historical perspective on Mars.”

Red Planet will premiere on National Geographic Channel in 2016.
